                                                    The Best!!!

                                                    Kathryn L.

                                                    I had such an amazing stay at Barbora's place. I could not have picked a better room to rent in all of Honolulu. For me, it provided the relaxation that I needed far away from the hubbub of downtown. I was able to sleep in (be aware that there is minor noise from ongoing updates to their amazing property) and also slept with my doors wide open to the tropical garden right outside my room. Loved it! And, I very much enjoyed talking with Barbora's husband Ron. I hope to come back if/when I visit Oahu again.

                                                    Mike S.Chapel Hill, NC

                                                    Very welcoming and comfortable stay! Easy access to Honolulu and U Hawai'i.

                                                    Felt exposed!

                                                    Gina C.

                                                    Although the hostess was very nice and the room was very clean we were not comfortable with the fact that someone standing on the outside could look into our bedroom. Sheer curtains were just a bit too revealing. The bed was comfortable but there was no comfortable chair to sit in and relax. A TV or radio would have added a nice touch.

                                                    A very charming and quiete place

                                                    Petra G.Erftstadt, NRW

                                                    Although the room was smaller than expected and the kitchen had to be shared we had wonderful 4 days. The owner (Ran and Balbora) were very helpful und nice. It was a wonderful experience treating as friends. We liked having breakfast and dinner in the beautiful garden.

                                                    Maybe one little point which could be improve was the stove. Although we were able to prepare our dinner the stove need to be checked.

                                                    We can really recommend this accomodation.

                                                    Near the city and still quiet

                                                    Sigrid R.

                                                    A special place! So close to the city, but it feels quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Very tasteful, lovely details and comfortable. Was great to meet Barb and Ron, very friendly, open and helpful people!

                                                    A ceiling fan would have been great as the room can get a bit stuffy at night.

                                                    Lovely and Tranquil

                                                    Felicia E.

                                                    It's been a few months since our stay, but we are still reeling over this wonderful place! The simplicity of a beautiful room tucked in the mountains, with such beautiful surroundings, was absolutely incredible. We woke up to the sounds of nature and soft breezes each morning as Java finches and parrots played in the trees. We even had a couple of chickens drop by to say hello. The view from the terraces were breath taking! The property was so convenient to everything, yet so peaceful and quiet. We cannot wait till we go back!
